Take the free shuttle - location is tricky for unfamiliar cab drivers. We took a cab there but were able to ride the shuttle back to the French Quarter. Not safe to walk there from the Quarter. This tour has been on my list of things to do if it rains on a NOLA trip and it was a good... More

Prior to our visit to New Orleans, my boyfriend and I decided to go on this tour. We scheduled our tour ahead of time and it was very easy. They picked us up from the French Market and drive you to the distillery. Which is great because trying to get there on your own might be really confusing! Our driver... More

Sunday was the only day I had available, but they offer two tours so I picked the 4pm. The first thing our guide explained was how the owner is a famous artist, but looking around the distillery, full of industrial looking vats and unorganized equipment laying around, I could hardly believe it. An artist would like for his distillery to... More

Highly recommend this tour! Shuttle to/from the distillery- just call and they will tell you the pick up location. My husband and visited at noon on a weekday and ended up with a private tour! Pre-tour cocktail and samples are great- ended up purchasing 3 bottles! Tour guide was great!

An interesting tour just a few minutes outside the French Quarter. Jeff was our shuttle driver & tour guide & was great fun. Free samples are included & the rum is soooo good!

Good experience, learned some history, had some good samples. We drove there, it is located out of the way, but, worth the drive. Recommend.

The tour pick-up was late due to multiple Easter parades, but our guide quickly redeemed himself. The tour was informative and moved at a good, entertaining pace. Most importantly, the rum is good.

This was a excellent tour! Jeff was fantastic as a tour guide and shuttle driver, he was hilarious and knowledgable. The cocktail prior to the tour was great and the samplings at the end were a perfect way to finish up. Definitely the best $10 a person we've spent in NoLa. We truly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to all... More

We reserved this tour on the internet prior to our arrival in New Orleans. Even though the address is on Frenchman Street, it is NOT near the Marigny or French Quarter area. You will have to either drive there or take their free shuttle. We were picked up in the French Quarter. It turned out that our driver was also... More
